Calendar20 June 2019

The Swedish tax authority has clarified (Swedish) that employer-paid health insurance will be subject to 60% taxation — this means that 40% of the premiums will be tax exempt for employees. The decision follows the introduction on 1 Jul 2018 of new taxation rules for employer-provided healthcare. The applicable tax rate can be backdated to 1 Jul 2018, but employers should seek advice from the tax authorities.
